It’s 2018 and people are still (understandably) obsessed with Frida Kahlo. Google knows this, and has worked with 33 museums from seven countries to arrange an insane collection of hundreds of pieces of her art, including some that had never been digitized before, and made them available online.
Mattel announced last week that it is releasing a line of “Inspiring Women” Barbie dolls, including a doll in the likeness of Frida Kahlo. It didn’t go over well: In real life, Frida Kahlo had a huge unibrow, a prominent nose, wore long, traditional Tehuana dresses, and lived with various disabilities that often left…

Cards Against Humanity has a history of mailer promotions around the holidays for people who aren’t satisfied with the stack of crap they don’t want from Secret Santa. The company retired the promos in 2015, but they’re back, and this time it’s to fight Trump’s border wall. Okay.
There’s a new exhibit dedicated to the ancient site of Teotihuacan, outside Mexico City, that synthesizes a number of discoveries and recently uncovered artifacts. And it sounds like a fascinating peek into an incredible place.
Isn’t it weird when you read something absolutely insane and you’re like, wait, is this news? Didn’t I hear that already? Don’t you feel, sometimes, like we’re being force-read an extremely obvious and cliché novel at a rate of a few sentences a week?
I would make a joke but I’m too distracted by that unbelievably ugly tie!
For years archeologists have been hunting for a royal tomb somewhere in the ancient Mexican city of Teotihuacán. This year they thought they were close, but it seems they’ve struck out. This is disappointing not only because it would have been an awesome archeological discovery, but also because the lead archeologist…
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), who is wrong about most things, inevitably found himself in the tricky position of getting scolded by a small child at an Arkansas town hall meeting on Wednesday night.
According to an internal report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security seen by Reuters, the wall that President Donald Trump has been squawking about building for over 18 months will be really, really fucking expensive.
At a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May—whose name was spelled wrong three times by the White House ahead of her sit-down meeting with Trump—our president emphasized the importance of the U.K.-U.S. relationship. “This is our first visit. So. Great honor,” he said, as he read an opening…
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has canceled his January trip to the US and said he will not sit down with Donald Trump, who continues to insist he will force Mexico to reimburse U.S. taxpayers for his proposed $12 billion dollar wall that will act, more than anything, as a concrete middle finger to Mexico.
Here’s a forthcoming comedy starring Mexican comedian Eugenio Derbez and Salma Hayek, the former of which bought the film through his company 3pas Studios. In it, Derbez plays a kept man married to an aging rich white lady, who also apparently attempts to seduce Kristen Bell with his “Latin loverness,” eugghhh.
Last week, Grammy-winning musician Lila Downs released “El Demagogo”/“The Demagogue,” her first song since 2015's sublime Balas y Chocolate, as part of the 30 Days 30 Songs anti-Trump initiative. Sung in both English and Spanish, it’s a beautiful folk song that lays out the numerous issues with Trump and his virulent…
Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise has been reliably excellent, as nothing will ever be bad about a group of hardbodied Instagram salesmen competing to be in relationships with each other in a crab-infested cabana with no air conditioning.
Frida Kahlo, since her death 62 years ago today, has become such a staple of American culture so as to seem ubiquitous. Her indelible, inimitable self-portraits have been reproduced on coasters and playing cards, earrings and t-shirts, pillow cases and pajama pants. Each Halloween, thousands of revelers across the…
I may not celebrate Easter myself, but from what I can tell, marshmallow Peeps and multi-colored eggs have nothing on the mad Easter game Mexico is running right now.
Julianne Hough, her three sisters, and her mom are having an extremely hardcore vacation right now in Mexico, as evidenced by some recent photos that show a couple of them yakking off the side of a boat. My ladies, what happens in Cabo literally never stays in Cabo!
